TAC: Open Gym
Our adaptive Open Gym is reinventing the way people play. Disability or not, Open Gym invites you and everybody you know to come play in a “Different Pair of Shoes.”
Wheelchair and adaptive sports can be scary — especially if it’s your first time. The Ability Center decided to remove the fear and offer our community an opportunity to play TOGETHER in an inclusive, non-competitive, friendly environment where your friends, family, peers and/or colleagues can join you to play in a “Different Pair of Shoes.” Everybody plays at TAC: Open Gym, we hope you’ll join us to try something different — disability or not Open Gym invites you to get in the game.
Individuals on the autism spectrum, those with ADHD, and anyone with difficulties processing sensory information can benefit greatly from participating in wheelchair and adaptive sports. Each activity provides tactile, vestibular, and proprioceptive input which are especially important for regulating our sensory systems.
